After weeks of anticipation, preview videos and closer looks, Jun Takahaski’s AW13 Nike Gyakusou is now available to buy online at oki-ni. This time around, Takahashi moves the focus away from print and colour and instead towards texture. Items in the collection come in single-colours with variations in texture and fabric providing the contrast.
Feeling the product in your hand you get to grips with the remarkable differences in texture, as soft woven polyester is broken up with lazer-cut holes, feathery mesh sections and other technical details designed specifically to circulate air, wick away moisture and regulate temperature.
A triumph of performance design, the collection is built around the very latest in clothing technology, which Takahashi discovered after a session with Nike’s Advance Innovation Team at the brand’s World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.
